I'm going to ignore the lack of emails, SMS's or phone calls to see if 
anything had been organised, and your preference to use a system that is 
( and no offence to Andrew, here) returning pgsql connection errors far 
more often than the login page as a canonical means of determining if a 
talk has been organised.

On the 2nd of May, in an email titled "CLUG in need of a new cat 
herder", you said;

lined up for the next few meetings, and if anyone wanted to talk about 
anything, to see me after the meeting.

So what it appears here is that there confusion and mixed messages all 
around. I've reverted the LUGIAB system back to list you as the "cat 
herder" for CLUG, and you can add the talks you've organised into the 
system and carry on organising the meetings.

All the best
